   Ah, welcome back, devfs. Quoting from the patch submission:

	Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh at suse.de>

   He fought long and hard[1][2][3] against devfs and eventually succeeded
in having it removed from the kernel. I don't think I want to know what they
did to him to have him accept to put dev(tmp)fs back in. But it is good
